Evin Grant at Reduser.net has posted his experiences with the 6K Red Epic Dragon:
This camera’s color science is beta, in fact the version of RCX I used is still using RG3 & RC3 so they are not yet matched to the immense DR and color info of these files.
This camera also had a brand new IR filter installed and no adjustments had beed made to the CS or RCX for any impact that might have on color rendering.
All of the above meant I felt in order to be fair to the camera and sensor I needed to do some color correction beyond RCX, to that end I did a single primary pass in Resolve on the Prores 444 output.
The kelvin and tint settings noted in the video are my approximation of the ambient lighting according to the eye-dropper in RCX, I developed at different settings when I though it looked best. I also pushed the color saturation as far as I felt I could before looking garish, this is not actually my preferred taste but I felt it was important for the test.
Ok, now I can gush a bit…
Wow, it’s hard to describe the amount dynamic range, sensitivity and color information coming off this sensor. It it’s really weird to just hold everything, the highs the lows and know you just got it. My feeling is there is more DR visible here than the stated spec, but it’s hard to quantify.
